Is it worth it.

So I'm looking at picking up another truck.

2000 F250 Red cab and a half.
7.3 with 87,000 miles
The truck is in great shape it still has the factory sticker on the axles.
8.5 Donahoe lift.
5" MBRP exhaust.
ATS turbo
AFE intake
BTS tripple clutch trans
Dynatrac axles with lockers and 4.11 gears
AMP power step.
SSBC brakes.
On board air compressor.
40X14.5 KM2 tires
17x10 weld rims
Leather interior conversion.
Bush wackers cut outs.
and much more.

I don't know if the injectors have been upgraded or the high pressure pump.
My main disslikes are the bushwackers fender cutouts, the lift and tires and I would perfer the crew cab.
I would deff. change the lift to a 4" or 6" and run 35" to 37" and ditch the bushwackers (needs fenders and the box fixed or new box).

I've got the guy down to $17,000.00
Is it worth it?

Fenders and box will cost money so will tires and smaller lift. Probably will bring the cost to at least 2 grand more, 1000 for tires, 1000 for lift (just a rough idea), then add on fenders and bed, 2 grand on the cheap side. Might not be worth it since it is not the ideal truck you want and would cost more to get what you want. Then again its a low mile 7.3. Hard decision to make but good luck.

I would say to drop and smaller tires, but DON"T mess with the flares...
too much work involved with replaacing half the truck!!! and having to paint it after new fenders and box is put on.

If you can't stand the flares look at a truck that doesn't have them.
I would just leave them on if you like the truck though, the price seems ok, I noticed it is a low mileage 7.3
